White Model Poses in ‘African Queen’ Editorial

african queen

The fashion world has been known to push the boundaries of what’s socially acceptable and without a doubt,stir controversy.

In the March 2013 issue of Numéro magazine, 16-year-old white model Ondria Hardin appears drenched in a very deep bronze for a fashion spread called “African Queen,” reports Jezebel.com.

Hello! This would have been the perfect opportunity to hire a black model, as there are fewer job opportunities for non-white models. Eighty-two percent of the models at New York Fashion Week this season were white, cites Jezebel.

This is not the first incident a magazine has caused a cultural stir.

In 2009, Vogue was accused of racism for using photos of white model, Lara Stone, with her face and body darkened in brown make-up.

Do you think it’s okay to use a white teen model in an “African Queen” spread?
